Have you ever used Mod Podge? It’s only the most awesome decoupage medium in the whole world – at least according to me! Hello by the way. I’m Amy from Mod Podge Rocks, and I blog every single day about the topic of glue. Funny, huh? I’d love to share with you some of my best-loved Mod Podge projects according to views on my site. Each of these projects uses Mod Podge in one way or another, and most use it in multiple ways. Mod Podge is the most amazing glue, sealer and finish ever. I know I sound like an infomercial, but I truly believe in the power of this glue. It really can craft anything. Here are eight projects to get you started.
1. Painted and Podged Acorns – I find the popularity of this project to be hilarious. All I did was paint some found acorns (yes, they are real!) with paint and then sealed them with Podge. The idea took off! Mod Podge can be used with most natural items, including leaves. Did you know it will preserve the color?
2. Refurbished Key Portrait – A perfect example of making something old (and broken) new again. I got this piece of key art on clearance and gave it a much needed overhaul. That’s fabric in the background.
3. Easy Canvas Wall Art – Take your favorite images from a book, scan them, print them and then Mod Podge them onto a canvas. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like paying big bucks for something I can do myself. You also don’t have to feel guilty about changing your wall decor when it becomes outdated, because you didn’t have to sell your first born to pay for it.
4. Mod Podge Glass Clings – This experiment with Mod Podge and acrylic paint turned into homemade glass clings. You can make these with children – Mod Podge is completely safe for kids to handle.
5. Handmade Paper Twist Wreath – made by Emily from WhipperBerry and featured on Mod Podge Rocks. I love budget friendly home decor, and this takes the cake. All you need are some mad twisting skills, and you are in business. A wreath like this isn’t just for Christmas. Customize with other colors to use all year round.
6. DIY Fashion Bangles – I’ve become obsessed with decorating wood bangle bracelets lately. They are so easy and you can output so many at one time . . . great for gifting to girlfriends. I think you’ll particularly like the pennant one, inspired by my friend Jen at Tatertots & Jello (she loves buntings).
7. $1 Dessert Stand – I dug an old candlestick and some papers out of my stash to make this cake plate. The only purchase was the plate, which is from Dollar Tree. Perfect to take to a get-together or dinner party and then leave as a gift.
8. Photo Negative Lamp – This IKEA hack from Claire at Poopscape is totally brilliant. That is why I featured it. I never thought about Mod Podging photo negatives, and I do have a ton of them. Somewhere under the bed, being guarded by the under-the-bed storage monster.
